An interesting chapter on the epidemic of hepatitis C in Egypt highlights that, while the public health department in that country was actively involved in controlling schistosomiasis by giving injections of tartar emetic, at one center it was observed that almost 500 individuals were injected in 50 rain allowing just 5 sec for each injection with 20 to 30 syringes in rotation, thereby not allowing adequate sterilization and hence the transmission of HCV infection.
